Sonora Review is run entirely by graduate students in the MFA program at the University of Arizona. Sonora Review accepts submissions in flash prose, fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. We only accept unpublished work. Typical response time is three to six months. Please submit only once every six months.

$1000 and publication in Issue 75 of Sonora Review will be awarded for our annual flash prose contest. The finalists for the contests will be judged by Nicole Walker.

The theme for the contest is DESIRE. For a sense of what we're looking for, please see our issue preview page.

You may submit up to three flash prose pieces in your submission (1000 words or less for each). Include a cover letter with a brief biography, your contact information and any other pertinent information about your submission. Please remove your name or any other identifying marks from your manuscript before uploading. Please state the word count of your piece on the first page of the document.

Sonora is excited about that which is, above all else, brave and inventive, be it fiction, creative non-fiction, poetically-slanted, or something in-between. We seek work that challenges convention - through form, through content, through voice. Show us the world as it is and it could be. Make us uncomfortable, thrilled. Make us understand something new.
